Yale School of Management Appoints New Senior Associate Dean
Yale School of Management (SOM) last week appointed a new senior associate dean to serve as the visible leader both internally and externally of the full-time MBA program, Dean Designate Edward Snyder announced. Jeanette Gorgas, who will have overall responsibility for recruitment and admissions, student services and academic advising and career development, among other duties, joins Yale SOM today, April 11th.
Beyond upholding her responsibilities as senior associate dean, which will include active engagement with MBA students both academically and professionally, Gorgas also will be a member of the Dean’s Leadership Team that manages broader aspects of the school. In this role, she will help develop and grow school-wide external relationships with enterprise as well as with other academic units within Yale University, Snyder said.
Prior to joining Yale SOM, Gorgas has held an array of leadership positions in the financial, entrepreneurial and nonprofit sectors. Most recently, she served as senior vice president and leadership development executive for Bank of America. She also worked as a managing director and global talent acquisition and development manager for Deutsche Bank, as well as human resources manager for several other global businesses.
“I recall Ms. Gorgas as exceedingly impressive and effective when she recruited MBAs during the early part of her career at Deutsche Bank—before her responsibilities shifted to senior-executive talent,” Snyder wrote in a message to the Yale SOM community. “I am extremely pleased that Ms. Gorgas has accepted the offer to come to Yale and look forward to Ms. Gorgas’s enthusiastic leadership, to her evident interest in the Yale SOM community, to her commitment to continuing the school’s strong momentum, and to her skilled approach in achieving objectives that will benefit our students, alumni, and faculty—and increase Yale SOM’s global influence on business and society,” he continued.
